Here's the problem: I can't seem to get my volume levels to the same levels as any other mix. I will be working with a mix, and when I have it where I think it should be I will load a song from my itunes to compare, and the volume will be very different (my mix usually being much quieter). Is there a standard volume that everyone aims for? This is what I do: I set my pre amps to that things aren't clipping. I usually record guitars and vocals through some condenser microphones. I record them, and adjust levels accordingly so they blend right. Is there something more I need to be looking for, maybe something on my outputs? Thanks for you comments. I am rather novice at all recording, but I have a passion for it.
